    May I brag?

    I started making bags last Friday. To date, I have sold 5 and have orders for 4 more. I posted a couple of these pictures before, but here they are again plus some new ones.
    Thanks for looking and indulging my bragginess

    Very nice! I'd buy one too.
    I took a purse/tote class and one thing the designer stressed was never use thread that was lighter then then the lightest fabric.

    They're very nice.
    No matter how tough life is, it sure beats the alternative.

    I took them to work and they've been selling there. (shhh) Also posted them on Facebook and they've been selling there too.

    By the way, I noticed that the large brown one wasn't hanging right, but that has been corrected since the pic was taken

    Someone told me once that QB is made for bragging! Was it you? Anyway, it is true -- and you should brag, these bags are lovely. So glad that you're having success with them. Love the brown one -- very nice fabrics.
    Reading, cooking, sewing in retirement! Heaven!

    I love your bags. I really like those with the pocket in the front.

    I love looking at your bags and the fabric that you use. Maybe I can get motivated to make myself one. Please continue to share. pat

    They're really nice bags. This is the one place you can brag and we all understand. We all do it too.
